What makes a work of art "good"? Why are we personally drawn to one artist and not another? These are some of the questions we'll explore during this interactive walking tour featuring three Santa Fe art galleries and a chocolate elixir tasting at Kakawa Chocolate House. Discover exciting galleries, delve deeper into the artwork on view, and awaken your senses with tantalizing chocolate elixirs. 


Many of us love visiting art museums and galleries, but how often do we get the opportunity to slow down, take a closer look, and really engage with what we're seeing? This interactive tour is designed to get us to do just that, all while enjoying the atmosphere of three exciting (and very different) Santa Fe art galleries. 

We'll kick off the tour at Nedra Matteucci Galleries, a landmark Santa Fe art gallery. Housed in a sprawling historic adobe, Nedra Matteucci Galleries specializes in work with a Southwestern flair by modern and contemporary New Mexico artists. There, we'll delve into an artwork on view through a handy method for art criticism. Next door, Peters Projects shows a range of fascinating artwork by local and international cutting-edge contemporary artists. After exploring the current exhibitions at Peters Projects, we'll head to Pippin Contemporary, a cozy gallery on Canyon Road that celebrates color. Through close-looking prompts and conversation, we’ll probe what makes good art good, pinpoint what we personally respond to, and uncover what we value about art.

To conclude the tour, we’ll visit Kakawa Chocolate House and indulge in tantalizing chocolate elixirs that stimulate the senses with unique combinations of herbs, spices, and fine drinking chocolate. Once you've selected your favorite, we'll continue the conversation while enjoying the Kakawa elixirs of our choice. One small chocolate elixir is included in the price of the tour.

  • Practice tricks for art criticism
  • Delve into the work on view and have fun discussions about art
